    While I was lukewarm at best to the opening issue of A+X, I have to say this second issue really shows me that Marvel has what it takes to make this comic not just sell, but excel. This is exactly the showcase for established and rising talent that we've been waiting for " A+X #2 is an equation that should be a no-brainer for fans of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review

    Overall, the book was very entertaining. In some books like this, sometimes you only get one worthwhile story, but this one delivered both times. Definitely a fun read and sort of a nice break from the grim continuity of some of the other Marvel NOW books. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Dec 4, 2012

    When your daily allocation of free time feels like it's ever-dwindling, praise be for comics like this. Stand-alone in nature, small in page count but big on talent, filled with riotous fun from cover to cover " a more enjoyable use of 10 minutes I think I'd be hard pressed to find. I've previously made sure to check the creators headlining each issue before putting down my $3.99, but no more. No-one's phoning in their A+X performances, and as such this is one team-up book that I'll be sure to always make time for. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - ToriBee Dec 2, 2012

    As earlier mentioned, this series is basically all in good jest and just overall fun to read. There's no serious plot, and it's kind of nice to see our favourite heroes a bit more on the happier side. And for light reading, A + X is genuinely a pleasure, though maybe more of a pleasure if you actually like the paired up characters, seeing as the so called villains have been pretty harmless so far, you have to like the heroes beating them up.

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Nov 26, 2012

    Overall, the art was, for the most part, really pretty but the plot just didn't make much sense. I liked the way that Rogue was portrayed, but I was not a fan of the way Bachalo wrote Black Widow. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Gartler Nov 27, 2012

    A good second issue for "A+X" and -- like many of the Marvel NOW! launch titles -- convincingly better than the first. Your interest may vary depending on the creators and characters involved, but technically, objectively, this is a good comic, and one I'm looking forward to seeing more of. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 28, 2012

    Though A+X has its quirks and weak moments, the series can't be accused of not delivering on its simple premise. Even Marvel readers tired of the event machine might want to look beneath the AvX-style cover page and enjoy the simple, lighthearted tales within. Read Full Review

    Speaking of bad ideas, this comic... See what I did there? Anyway, yeah, this comic was all around terrible. I should have just reviewed Thor and FF instead of this one, but what's done is done. The Black Widow/Rogue story had Widow acting oddly out of character, while the Kitty/Iron Man one just wasn't funny, which is shocking since it was written by Peter David, who is probably the best comic writer of all time when it comes to stirring humor into a comic. In other words, I would highly recommend skipping this one. Read Full Review

    A pretty solid issue from Chris Bachalo. Story was witty at times, bland at others. The art is a definite booster.
